The purpose of the One Heritage State of Black Miami Forum is to convene the entire Black community to look at our challenges and accomplishments through a common lens. Following this discussion, Miami-Dade's leaders can help to unleash the potential of Black population with proactive efforts to pursue policies and actions that are equitable and inclusive.
The objective of the Forum is to also celebrate oneness of community heritage and unite the entire Black diaspora whether African-American or of Caribbean and/or Afro-Hispanic heritage. As Miami continues to evolve as a world class region, a shared prosperity is vital for all of Miami-Dade County including for communities of color, which is what the Forum intends to address.
The One Heritage State of Black Miami Forum is open to the entire community and will reflect the richness of the Black community to include the African-American community, Caribbean diaspora, as well as Afro-Hispanics. A number of organizations representing various segments of our community will also be participating in this important discussion.
The day-long forum will discuss and assess Black Miami's state of economic prosperity, community development, and quality of life with topics centered around procurement, infrastructure, economic activity, criminal justice reform and policing, education, and housing.
